A Picture Dictionary

Artists Felix Heyes and Ben West, who live in Great Britain, managed to create an original dictionary of English words, which surprisingly does not contain not even one word. Instead 21.000 photographs are used in order to illustrate each one, taking the first picture anyone can find when Google-ing a word. 

That is why the book is entitled "Google". This book is based on the Webster dictionary. We can say that this idea was inspired by the phrase "one picture equals with a thousand words", which was definitely the case in past generations.
